London CLC is a Bett Awards 2020 finalist – twice!

London CLC is through to the finals of TWO Bett Awards – the Collaboration with a School and the Service and Support categories of the Bett Awards 2020. Hurray!

CLC Bett show

The prestigious Bett Awards are a celebration of the inspirational creativity and innovation that can be found throughout technology for education. 

The Service and Support award, which we won last year, celebrates companies and educational organisations that provide effective services, support and professional development to ensure that ICT really makes an impact in the classroom. The Collaboration award recognises how an organisation has worked with a school in an innovative way to have a transformative impact upon either educational standards or the operational running of the school.

We’re delighted to have our work recognised by the Bett judges in both categories and we’re immensely grateful to everyone who’s contributed to that work, especially the schools, teachers, children and organisations we work with and for.

Collaborating with Iqra Primary School to bring a vision to life

Iqra Primary School’s head teacher Humaira Saleem had a vision for her school: that every child should be able to access technology and make full use of it to support their learning, developing the skills they need for the 21st century. We worked closely with Humaira and her team to understand their context and requirements and deliver on their shared vision. The positive impact on teachers and pupils from the innovative collaboration between Iqra and London CLC to realise technology-enhanced learning has been shown in numerous ways.

  • 81% of teachers said that the support had a high positive impact on their own technical skills
  • 72% of teachers said that the support had a high positive impact on pupils’ skills with technology
  • 63% of teachers said that the support had a high positive impact on the whole school

Alongside collaborating to bring Humaira’s vision to life, the school has also saved money as a result of the support and advice from London CLC. Humaira had this to say: “Getting the technical support as well as curriculum support and CPD for teachers meant the strategic partnership has supported the school throughout the change.”

Outstanding technical and curriculum support

We are proud to have a measurable impact on each school we support. 99% of teachers tell us that pupil learning outcomes improve following attendance at our curriculum support workshops and CPD sessions and 98% say that their own teaching practice will improve following attendance at these events (18/19 academic year). 

“London CLC has the best technical and curriculum support team I have worked with in the 15 years I have been involved in education. Their expertise, enthusiasm and patience has led them to them creating a safe, supportive environment for our children and staff to develop and learn. They manage to make the complex world of technology as simple as possible! London CLC just get it right. We are very lucky to have them.”
Deputy headteacher, St Jude’s Primary
